Working in the quilt shop has encouraged me to stretch a little bit in the colours I use. Half the floor space at the Quilting Connection is dedicated to fabrics grouped by colour, plus batiks. It’s my favourite side of the store, but somehow I always gravitated to the same part. There is a lot of blue in my stash!
A few weeks ago a customer requested help choosing purple, blue and green. Lots of purples and just a few light blues and greens. Yum! Those colours stacked together on her cart looked scrumptious.
This isn’t her collection, but when I needed fabric for the class I am teaching on Saturday, I headed for the purple, blue and green batiks. I’m going to cut some up today, more in class tomorrow to demonstrate cutting 60 degree angle, and start putting together another version of Sparkling Trail as I teach how to make it. We’ll see how I do with purples!
Next up, yellows and orange, unless my daughter changes her mind about what she would like in her next quilt!
